What Caused My Roof Damage?

ShingleMe Roofing's answer may surprise you.

Did you know that most roof damage is brought on from high winds of up to 60 miles per hour? A common misconception among homeowners is that rain, hail or snow caused their roof damage. Even after a significantly windy day it is important to check the exterior of your home and report damages to your insurance company. Take pictures to ensure damages are reported appropriately.

How to make a quick, general assessment of roof damage

A windy storm just blew through your neighborhood and you need to check your home for damage. Here's a breakdown of what to look for in a pinch:

Bare patches on your roof

Shingles littering your yard

Loose/crooked shingles on your roof

In the case that you and your neighbors each have shingles in your yards, it's important to establish the differences between the roofing types to assess the damage. If you are part of a homeowner's association that uses the same roofing materials throughout your street, pay close attention to areas of your roof that appear discolored and give us a call as soon as possible.
